Pretend Play and the Development of Emotion Regulation in Preschool Children.
Galyer, Karma T.; Evans, Ian M.
Early Child Development and Care, v166 p93-108 Feb 2001
Explored preschoolers' emotion regulation skills within a pretend play context using a negatively valenced event designed to elicit a high level of arousal. Found that children's success in continuing pretend play was related to emotion regulation skills in other contexts, whereas their effectiveness at resolving conflict was not. (TJQ)
